Schools gain in­de­pen­dence

Wanneroo Times - - News -

LO­CAL pub­lic schools have been granted in­de­pen­dent pub­lic school sta­tus for 2019 and on­wards.

Alin­jarra Pri­mary School in Alexan­der Heights and Somerly Pri­mary School in Clark­son were among 42 WA schools an­nounced with the new sta­tus, tak­ing the to­tal num­ber of in­de­pen­dent pub­lic schools to 573.

In­de­pen­dent pub­lic schools and their com­mu­ni­ties can make lo­cal de­ci­sions, while prin­ci­pals have more flex­i­bil­ity on staff re­cruit­ment, fi­nan­cial man­age­ment, gov­er­nance and ac­count­abil­ity.
